Stone Soup Academy

Stone Soup Academy is an alternative provision school for those aged 11-19 in Nottingham. The school, which opened in 2012, was established by a social enterprise who run creative arts programmes targeted at similar groups of young people. The school can cater for up to 100 pupils who are not thriving in mainstream education, and these students can take lessons in design, music and film production alongside English and maths. Due to the historically low levels of employment for this group of children, the school also places a strong emphasis on work and enterprise skills, helping pupils into work placements, and supporting them in developing their own business ideas.
